I agree with all here... Full blown tune up... Plugs, Wires, O2 sensor, clean throttle bore, new air filter, change oil and filter, change trans fluid and filter, and try a bottle of fuel system formula at your next fuel up, and some high test 91 or 93 octane fuel won't hurt either.. This should help a bit...
Oil, trans fluid, and their respective filters were changed about 700 miles ago, so how much are the wires, plugs, and O2 sensor going to cost me (looking for all the preformance I can get)??? and what do I need to do to the throttle bore to clean it???

Don't forget the fuel filter. Start with the cheap stuff first.

O2, fuel, air, oil, pcv, plugs, should run under $100. Then go wires, coil packs (if needed) and on.....

If you have a 95, and your wires are the stock gray numbered wires from the factory, you need them.

From that, and what you just posted, I'd say you have some problems there!
Would you be willing to venture a guess on what my problem might be???
If the car is still running , then it 80% not a mechanical problem , check your emmisions system , tune up , free up the exhaust , coil packs. Is your tranny shifting properlt? Is that 9 seconds cause your burning rubber?
O2 sensors
Missed this one the first time, nope thats 8.8-9.0 sec. without burning rubber, if I burn a some it'* more like 9.5-9.8 sec.

Hmm... gray... hmm... mine are like dusty-gray does that mean I dont need them???
So how much are a set of Taylors' going to run me?? Also, how in the heck am I supposed to reach the rear bank, looks almost impossibile... and also how about those plugs, they look even harder to get to on the rear bank??? and what size socket do I need to get 'em out???(i know they need to be special spark plug sockets but what size)

Ask Hector about his price on Taylors, then pick your color. Red, Black, Blue, Green, and Yellow?

Rear plugs aren't much harder than the front. Not bad at all. The socket is the smaller of the 2 standard plug sockets. 5/8".

Plug gap should be 0.060".

Even though mine is an SSE, it couldn't be that much heavier.

Only a couple hundred pounds. Depends on what you had for dinner. Take out your spare tire (the one in the trunk, not under the belt) and you'll be about even with an SE (jack too).

Lets see what we can do to get that white beast back on track. Your O2 won't normally cause a performance issue. I'd start with the plugs and wires. You've lost some power somewhere.

I think it will take a bit more than the spare and jack to even things up. Run with a quarter tank of gas; empty the pocket lint out of your pockets; vacuum the car out; remove the floor mats; have a friend stand outside with your proof of insurance, driver'* license, and registration; remove your shirt; and fast for three days. That should help your times out
